In what ways can museums, gardens and libraries be good for our health? Exploring how social prescribing within cultural spaces can support older people’s wellbeing
Monday, 20 September 2021, 10am to 11.30am
Join us for this online event as we launch our latest research findings on how cultural spaces can support the health and wellbeing of older people. Listen to older people talk about the importance these cultural spaces have in their lives and hear from cultural sector staff, link workers and researchers on how best we can create places of wellbeing ready for social prescribing.
The event will be delivered by researchers from the University of Oxford’s Centre for Evidence Based Medicine and practitioners from the Gardens, Libraries and Museums. The findings have been developed by a project team from the University of Oxford, University College London (UCL) and the University of Plymouth, in collaboration with older people, national and international cultural organisations, researchers and social prescribers. Information about the project can be found on Oxford Social Prescribing Research Network’s website (https://socialprescribing.phc.ox.ac.uk/research/projects/social-prescribing-for-older-people-in-the-time-of-covid-drawing-on-the-cultural-sector).
